My consistency is really starting to take a hit. I think I really need to sit down and figure out when it is best for me to do my meditation practice. Between trying to meditate, exercise, and write everyday, I still have to get ready for work every morning and make dinner every night. Part of the reason why I wanted to start these commitments was to have a set routine so I could free up space for things I’ve been wanting to pursue. It seems like I keep leaving it up to chance or remembering and before I know it, it’s the next day and I skipped something.
The most important commitment to me is my decision to put my binge drinking to an end. So far, I have been able to honor that promise to myself without exceptions. I’m really seeing the truth in William James’ assertion that “a desire will die of inanition if it never be fed.” It’s been a full month now and I’m not going out of my mind. The urge does spring up sometimes, but it’s easy enough to release. But I do want to continue with my other commitments to meditate and exercise everyday. I really do believe the benefits are worth it. No better time to renew one’s pledge than the present.
